Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser responded to Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) concealed carry video, suggesting Boebert “incites violence” by talking about carrying her Glock in the city.

Boebert trolled Democrats on January 3, 2021, with a video about her Glock. In the video, Boebert detailed why she carries a gun for self-defense and said she will carry one in D.C. because the city is “one of the “top 10 most dangerous cities in our country,” where the homicide rate and violent crimes “are skyrocketing.”

Arsenal Media Group videoed Boebert as she moved through various parts of the city and talked about the importance of carrying a firearm:

WDVM reports that Bowser responded to Boebert’s video by saying, “It angers me actually, that any elected official would incite violence, put our city at risk, put these men and women in law enforcement at risk, our residents at risk, and our beautiful city at risk.”

D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee said he is going to contact Boebart’s office to be sure she understands the city’s gun laws.

During a December 23, 2020, interview with Breitbart News, Boebert explained she had already gone through the process necessary to obtain a Washington, D.C., concealed carry permit.
